For those of you who have had hospital-based hypnobabies birthings, how involved were your partners during the home-study and actual birthing day? Were they absolutely committed to following the workbook and assignments each week, or were they a bit more lax in their study? To be honest, I'm hoping to hear that some of you had partners who procrastinated until the last minute but were wonderfully supportive when the big day came...(I have a DH who hates homework!)

That's the down side to the home study. The live class is much more partner oriented. I did the home study twice and dh wasn't involved in my practice. He was supportive but didn't learn any of the cues or read the quick reference guide. greensad.gif I still had awesome Hypnobabies births though! Hire a hypnodoula and contact a local instructor about a one time home study advantage class to supplement the home study and draw your partner into your practice. Hth!! Happy birthing smile.gif

Loving mama to ds C (6/07) and dd N (11/08). Joyously welcomed our rainbow1284.gif, dd2 A (8/11).

DH finally read the birth partner's guide, so at least he's not totally put of the loop! I'm now on Week 3, and really loving it. I have a feeling my guy will come through in the end.

We are already planning on doing a rehearsal session with a local instructor as we get closer to the guess date...a hypnodoula isn't in our budget, unfortunately!
